Boots Xmas 3 for 2 Mix and Match
Christmas gift shopping: what to buy your spouse, teenager or young children from the Boots 3 for 2 mix and match
Christmas is one of the best times of year; you can decorate your home however festive you wish to go, there are lots of parties and social gatherings, and you get to spend time with your nearest and dearest.
But with all of the decorating, partying and celebrating comes a cost. The team at www.MoneySavingHeroes.co.uk are set on helping people all around the UK save money, not just at Christmas but all year round, and are constantly on the lookout for the best money-saving deals to do just that.
With Christmas drawing ever closer and people starting to make their lists of who they need to buy for and what they need to buy, Boots have a fantastic 3 for 2 offering over the festive period that cover almost all bases. We’ve had a look through the 1,141 items they currently have included in the 3 for 2 mix and match offering (with no doubt many more coming) and pulled out some of the best gifts that you can give your partner, hard-to-buy-for teenagers and the little ones in your life.
How does the Boots 3 for 2 mix and match work?
It’s as simple as you get to select three gifts out of more than 1,000 on offer, and you get the cheapest item free. But there are many things you need to help you get be prepared for Christmas, including wrapping paper, tags and bows – so it’s not just gifts for those around you, and you can make savings in many areas.
Items range from £1 (for wrapping accessories) to £60 (Soap & Glory Sweet Tin-Tations), so how much you save depends on what you’re looking to buy.
What’s more, while it’s fantastic to Christmas shop on the highstreet, you can shop the 3 for 2 range both online and on the highstreet, so if it’s too cold then you don’t have to leave the house, or if you can’t sleep, why not get your shopping sorted and tick one thing off your list?
Our only advice right now though would be to avoid the filter buttons. As of yet not all products have been categorised and you will certainly miss out on some fantastic gifts and deals if you do so.

Christmas gifts for the teenage girl in your life
It’s never too soon to introduce your children to the magic that is bath bombs, and we highly recommend A Little Something Bath Fizzer Collection to get them started. Being a teenager is stressful, from having a lot of homework to do and having to revise for exams, to having to be a social butterfly and make time for the family too. This collection of bath bombs will allow them a few moments of peace, tranquillity and relaxation; the only thing we’d suggest adding to this is a few candles to add to the mood, but ensure they’re kept in a safe place.
This gift set includes six bath fizzers: Gold Together Bath Fizzer (100ml), Perfect Moments Bath Fizzer (100ml), Fizz It Up Bath Fizzer (100ml), Prosecco Bubbles Bath Fizzer (100ml), Lavender Haze Bath Fizzer (100ml) and Eucalyptus Mist Bath Fizzer (100ml).
Your teenager is likely to be glued to their mobile phones over the Christmas period, so why not buy them the Fizz Christmas Lighter Charger to at least give off the vibe they’re fully immersed in the festivities? Plugging into their adaptor or computer, as well as their mobile phone, the charger then has seven decorative Christmas lights hanging off that soon light up when connected to a power source.
Assuming your teenager has watched the 2004 hit movie, Mean Girls, featuring Lindsay Lohan and based around a girl that is made to move high schools, then the Mean Girls Notebook is the perfect notebook for her. Not only will she be the talk of the class back at school, but everyone will want to be nice to her to ensure they don’t end up in the burn book.
Christmas gifts for young girls

For those who would rather not have a unicorn hottie, there is a penguin hottie on offer at the same cost.

Hotties are for everyone, and while little girls may well prefer a unicorn, little boys may prefer the Intelex Warmies Penguin Hottie. Different to a hot water bottle, this hottie doesn’t require water, simply needs putting in the microwave for 45 seconds, before cuddling up to in order to keep your little one warm, on the sofa, in the car or snuggled in bed.
